The 31-year-old has spent the past two seasons with the Seahawks, acting as a backup for Russell Wilson.

Although last season, he got his chance to step into a serious starter role for the first time since his days with the Jets in 2014.

The former West Virginia production played in four games and started in three of them:

  • 68.4 completion rate
  • 5 hits to 1 intercept
  • Throw the ball for 702 yards to pass

This season the Seahawks pull the trigger on a blockbuster deal sending their franchise quarterback to the Denver Broncos with a massive three-player and five draft picks.

One of the players they acquired in return was fourth-year quarterback Drew Lock, who was immediately thrust into the new-look quarterback competition with Wilson off-screen.


Lifetime opportunity

After spending time as a cruise backup quarterback for three different NFL organizations (New York Giants, Los Angeles Chargers and Seahawks), Smith now has the chance to change his football destiny.

According to Sports Illustrated’s Corbin Smith, the veteran had been negotiating with the Seahawks “for weeks” before becoming a free agency.

This will be his first legitimate opportunity to land a starting gig in the NFL since he left the Jets, according to Smith.

He originally entered the league as the 39th overall pick in the 2013 NFL draft by Gang Green. Smith spent four years with the Jets, the length of his rookie contract.

For the first two seasons he acted as a starter and then for the last two seasons he was a reserve:

  • 28 touchdowns down to 36 interceptions
  • 5,962 yardsticks
  • 57.9 completion rate

One of the Highlights of His time with the Jets was in the 2014 regular season finale against the Miami Dolphins. Smith threw 358 yards (the best of his career at the time), had perfect passing stats and hit three touchdown passes (also a career best pass at the time).

Smith went through many trials and tribulations during his time with the Jets but has had over 4 years to grow and learn from his mistakes.

While he only clinched a 1-2 record as a starting quarterback last season for the Seahawks, the problems far outweighed him.

In his limited opportunities, he showed some real poses and showed that he can still be a starting midfielder in this league. With minimal competition in the Seattle quarterback this season, there’s no reason Smith shouldn’t seize the opportunity.
